Innovation Forward: Technology and Diabetes Care


We have arrived at a new era in diabetes care. Innovative digital technologies mean blood glucose management and monitoring is becoming easier than ever which in turn could mean improved health outcomes and a greatly increased quality of life for the 34 million Americans living with diabetes. However, issues of access and affordability, user experience, and health system capability can be roadblocks, limiting equitable access and optimal use of these innovations.

This begs the question of whether health policy and practice need to be re-thought in order to maximize the opportunity and value of this new era. What barriers stand in the way of access to technological advances in diabetes care? How can policymakers reform systems to create more equitable access to medical technologies? What effects will innovative patient care have on the psycho-social needs of those living with diabetes?/p>

The Hill will bring together policymakers and health experts for an in-depth look into the newly digitized world of diabetes care and discuss how we can open the door to improved care outcomes for all.
